The IHS-link is a student-initiated activity to offer IHS students an opportunity to gather and communicate. The aim of its monthly meeting is not just socializing but also to deepen the understanding of various academic fields. In every meeting two IHS students give short presentations to introduce their research fields, followed by free discussion. The topics of presentation have so far covered a wide range of fields from theatre critique to statistical mechanics. Its activity has spun off other student projects such as rural gastronomy and university administration, thus sparking collaboration between IHS students in diverse disciplines.
